Be a Derek Jeter Swing Mechanic: How to be a Yankee Hitting Machine!

 

Fast-Ball middle in and what does Derek Jeter do?

He hits a hard line-drive in the opposite field gap…

How does he do it?

More importantly, how does he do it so consistently while making it look so easy? (If you haven’t watched the “How to hit a baseball like Derek Jeter” youtube video yet make sure you do that first before watching this Derek Jeter Swing Mechanic video).

He does it by letting the ball get as deep as possible to give him  more time to make an adjustment. This also allows him to hit pitches on the outer half of the plate and make the adjustment to off-speed pitches low and away as well as the ones left up in the zone.

What’s his approach?

Lots and lots of practice. In this “2 Easy Derek Jeter Hitting Drills for Better Contact” video I’ll share with you how I was able to implement Derek Jeter’s approach to hitting into my overall training.

I hope you enjoy this hitting drill video.

A great complimentary video for this baseball video is the how to hit a baseball like Bryce Harper video where I share with you where his Bat-Speed and power comes from.

Enjoy!

Steve Springer On Why The Batting Average Is Satan & How To Walk Up To The Plate With Confidence

 

I’m a firm believer that if you can really hit you’ll play. If you can literally change the momentum of a ball game with a swing of a bat on a consistent basis, making the transition to the next level of baseball is something that is completely within your grasp.

With that being said, becoming this kind of hitter is a very challenging thing to do. But it is possible and you can start by taking the advice of Toronto Blue Jays’ performance coach and big league scout Steve Springer.

We all know that you fail more than you succeed at the plate. So how do you learn from those failures?

What’s the biggest challenge?

In this AoB EXPERTS interview w/ Steve Springer he will tell you:

  • Why the Batting Average is Evil
  • What success truly is as a hitter
  • How to walk up to the plate with confidence every time

You’re going to love this interview!
